I'm wondering if I didn't shake the diluted starch enough before I sprayed it? On the upside, they did not scorch and the glue did not melt (I baked them at 250 for 13 minutes).

oh..i'm i never thought of hanging my korkers upside down...i'll have to try that. thanks for sharing your method. i stopped trying korkers because i could never get them poofy!
